You’re looking at our new house.
A quick catch-up for any one who hasn’t been avidly following our lives – Mark & I decided to have a Tiny House on Wheels (THOW for future reference) built, and load up the cats, our essential items, and take off and travel around the US for a year or so. We sold our house in Kanab, UT and moved to a 1 bedroom apt. in North Portland for a year. We figured that would give us time to choose the builder, have it built, further winnow down our stuff, etc.
We got the builder of our dreams – his website is http://www.zylvardos.com – and planned on taking off in May. Except that things happened, and our house wasn’t (isn’t) ready. We were INSANELY fortunate that two of our dearest friends said we could stay with them, so we’ve been in Fall City, WA since then.
A couple of weeks ago we went down (over? across?) to Olympia to meet with Zyl, and cement some things into place (where did we want the door? Colour of the roof?) etc.
And there, to one side, she lay. The basis of our new home. Right now, I’m pretty sure we’re batshit crazy.
But that’s nothing new, is it?
So – I WILL be keeping this blog up and running this time, because there is going to be stuff to blog about! More, super soon!
Purrs & Hugs,
Addendum by Mark:
The completed House in the photo is one of Zyl’s and while a cool design, is not what ours will be. Ours is based on the Ampersand, with customization. Our house base is the black trailer in the foreground. (Specs are it’s 22 feet, and can have up to 12,000 pounds of load. House is currently spec’d at 9,000 empty.)
